Mixing my colour temps
Posted 02 April 2006 - 12:23 AM
Also I'm trying to work out how to light this apartment, the director wants if quite warm looking, but the daylight coming is in a little cool, I'm thinking about using some arrilites 800w(3200k) (apartment is small) to light our actors and gelling them maybe just 1/2 or 1/4 CTB, will this look wierd and how can I create a warm glow on the walls, can't gel the windows they are floor to ceiling, huge, can I flood them with something? I want it to look like a warm summer light, but since it's just end of winter here it's kind of a harsh grey.
Maybe I need a 1k just incase?
Or am I better as I'm using the natural day light as my motivation and main source to rent Daylight balances lights and gel some with CTO to create pools of warm colour??

Now if all you want is some cosy warmth to the scene as if from warm practical interior sources, then it probably is a good thing that it feels colder outside the windows in comparison.

I'm going to light for daylight and balancing the cam for that and then add a soft/filter to give a nice glow to the interiors, she wants it kind of glam. Thinking about a warm black pro mist. Haven't shot anything is so many years,that I'm not too confident in making my decisions and there is not really a budget either, so that helped thanks David.
